This week I have been wondering, how I can blog about joy when bedridden from Lyme Disease....

Actually, it's a grace.  We are not to worry about tomorrow.  I simply don't have the cognitive strength to think about things I can't do anything about for long.  And lately, I haven't been able to do much about anything!  I think it has given me some further experience in these two verses:

 Isaiah 26:3
 You will keep him in perfect peace, 
 Whose mind is stayed on You,
  Because he trusts in You. 

And Matthew 6: 34

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble

I can say experiential that there is peace when you can rest in Him.  This enforced rest and peace is necessary for joy.  Trusting Him is necessary for joy

  1. Hi Jewell,
    So sorry to hear about the Lyme's disease. After a couple weeks of a rash, the md put me on anti-biotics for that. He said 2 wks, then added another and I seem to be Ok, but I know most probably don't get diagnosed as fast as I did. That was all last spring. I shall put you in my prayer scrapbook so I remember to pray for you. May His healing had work it's powerful healing in you at His appointed time.
